Re: Quick zone forecast extraction question...

We just use Peter Neilly's old "weather" program which works well 80% of the time. A cron call to the weather program produces the forecast which is displayed on our web site (example:

We are toying with doing our own script to bring up the success rate closer to 100%. If we develop anything soon, we'll drop you a copy.

Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone has, and would be willing to donate, a
Unix/Linux script which takes a zone forecast and just takes the
particular zone you want and "erases" the rest? I want to put those on my
website/local email list for the weekends, when not many are around on
campus. And for my campus web site. It would take all the zones and cut
out the unneeded ones.

I think I could reinvent the wheel, but if anyone has done it, I'd also be
willing to give you my warning scripts which I use to trip my web site to
various warnings screens (Example: see... ) for a template. Heck, I'd be
willing to give those out to anyone, anyway. Anything to save lives! Just
send me an email.
